Following his exit at the Round of 32 at the International Table Tennis Federation World Tour in Belgium, Quadri Aruna, says his attention has shifted to the Portuguese Super Cup as he prepares for the ITTF World Cup later in the year.
After beating Slovakia’s Roman Rezetka 4-1 in the round of 64, the Nigerian lost 4-3 to Japanese Kentaro Miuchi in the Belgium Open, which ended yesterday. But he said he would ensure that he wins the Portuguese Super Cup for his club, GD Toledos.
Aruna said it was painful losing to the Japanese but admitted that he needed to play more competitions.
“I have put this behind me as I am looking forward to the Portuguese Super Cup against Sporting. I am seriously looking forward to retaining the Portuguese Cup I won last year,” said Aruna.
He noted that the Portuguese Super Cup was not going to be an easy one because they will facing the most difficult rival, Sporting Lisbon.
